Rising number of commercialized office buildings driving Vietnam Office Stationery and Supply Market

Due to rising geopolitical concerns with China, several multinational corporations have relocated their offices from Mainland China to other small economies around the country. The next best alternative to China is Vietnam, which has been supplying excellent electronic device assembly and manufacturing at a lower cost than China, prompting many corporate offices to relocate their activities to Vietnam. It has resulted in a variety of opportunities in the Vietnam office stationery and supply market. Furthermore, government regulations have been amended in order to attract investors from around the world to invest and start businesses in Vietnam, thereby creating jobs and increasing demand for office supplies. According to the 2017 census, Vietnam had over 10,000 large enterprises, which would only grow in the next years, increasing demand for the Vietnam office stationery and supply market.

Growing Demand among Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) Propelling Market Growth

Vietnam consists of many SMEs including small companies, budding start-ups, medium-scale operations and companies operating with almost 250 employees. SMEs are the driving force behind any developing economy, creating a plethora of job opportunities for people all over the world. The Vietnamese start-up ecosystem has encouraged many aspiring entrepreneurs to launch small firms, thereby providing opportunities for the growth of the nation. As more SMEs recruit more staff, the procurement of basic tools and stationery equipment for day-to-day operations is becoming more vital. Thus, the increasing number of SMEs in Vietnam is contributing to the growth of the Vietnam office stationery and supply market.

Impact of COVID-19 on Vietnam Office Stationery and Supply Market 

The COVID-19 has severely impacted businesses across industries around the world, thereby reducing the availability of raw materials, let alone the supply of the final products. The businesses were grappling with lockdown restrictions, which had halted a lot of industrial operations. The tight lockdown limitations reduced the supply of raw materials needed for the production of office goods. Despite the fact that Vietnam borders China, the country was able to contain the spread of the COVID-19 and was recognized as one of the least affected regions in the globe; however, the Vietnam government had to confront some harsh measures, which impacted the demand for Vietnam office stationery and supply market.

Thus, Vietnam office stationery and supply market has been severely affected by the ongoing pandemic. To conform to social distancing norms, several offices announced work-from-home as the way to go, resulting in lower use of office stationery and supply. Additionally, though the growing expat culture had lured people from all over the world to settle and work in Vietnam, the pandemic forced them to leave the nation and return home, affecting the Vietnam office stationery and supply market. Apart from private offices, all government entities which had used a lot of office stationery had closed, thereby reducing the need for stationery products here as well.

The leading players in the Vietnam office stationery and supply market are 3M Vietnam Ltd., Canon Marketing Vietnam Company Ltd, Faber-Castell Group, Brother International, Kokuyo Co.
